I’ve been putting together a nook in the family room where I can sit and do the paperwork that comes with running a home- bill paying, meal planning, coupon clipping and such. The wall above the desk has been empty up until now, when my budget friendly art plans came to fruition.
The family room is on the wooded side of the house, and the light is not great for photography in the room, but the project was simple and elegant and easy to do.
I started by creating the prints in PicMonkey. You can have them too, if you like- just click on the picture to enlarge it, right click and save to your computer. I had mine printed as 5×7 photos at Walmart.
The inspirational quotes are from Proverbs 31, the well-known bible passage describing a good wife as being far more valuable than rubies. I’m a long way from being the Proverbs 31 woman, but it’s something to aspire to.
I had the frames on hand and had already spray painted them in the metallic gold color. The mattes were white, so I just spray painted them black to make the prints pop a little more.
I’m very pleased with how they turned out, and I hope they’ll keep me motivated when I’m sitting at my desk working on the household business.
Leave me a note and let me know if you think you can use them in your home- I’d love to see what you do with them!
